He underscored the continuing efforts deployed by the Palestinian leadership to secure the necessary funding to implement strategic development projects (including connection roads, water networks, classrooms and kindergartens) to enable our Palestinian people benefit fro the natural resources in these areas. The projects also aim to relieve citizens of a heavy burden since it endeavors to improve the socioeconomic conditions of people in marginalized areas, isolated by the Israeli occupation’s apartheid measures.
